Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q So, given what has just been said, do you think the Bill—to go back to the earlier question—goes far enough? Can it be strengthened? Is there anything that could be looked at?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: As long as it works in practice.

International Trade: Trade Barriers: Potential Cost ( 8 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: I agree with my right hon. Friend that we should not be showing our hand when we go into such massive negotiations as these, but will he expand on the parliamentary process behind any new trade deals with the EU and any other trading bloc?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q There is an elephant in the room, and I am surprised that it has not yet come up. The Sutton Trust report which came out earlier this year—this is more of a question to Mr Sim—it stated that Scottish 18-year-olds from the most advantaged areas are still more than four times more likely to go straight to university than those from the least advantaged areas, compared with 2.4 times more...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q So you have identified the problem, and you have come up with what is almost a small tweak to the system. Surely, with a four-times disparity, that requires fundamental change in the system itself?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: This is not comparing with the UK.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q Going back to some of the points raised earlier by Professor Ebdon in relation to the independence of OFFA, how does the Bill deliver true independence and actually enhance independence?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q One question that came up a number of times earlier today is about social mobility. We often hear in the media that we should be focusing on the red brick and Russell Group universities. We hear a lot about that, but obviously organisations and institutions in the same sectors as your own have a responsibility to do that, too. What I would like to hear, further to your reading and...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q I am glad you are but social mobility is not just about socio-economic factors; it is also around the public sector equality duty. In terms of BME for example, and in relation to women within STEM as a prime example of under-representation, do you see this Bill presenting new opportunities to enable greater participation in other areas, not just in socio-economic terms?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Any comments from anyone else?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: I want to move on to the alternative provider of student finance, which some of the panel have talked about heavily. Given that, over the years, a large number of religious students are not necessarily able to access that fundingQ , I was wondering in terms of the Bill itself whether you support what is being detailed and outlined here, or is there anything that should be enhanced or improved?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q I want to find out what your views are on the creation of UKRI, and your thoughts on whether it will bring a greater sense of oversight and more strategic direction as well. Professor McKellar, perhaps you can start off.

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q Do you agree with that assessment, Professor?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: Q Does the legislation as it currently reads enable that to take place?

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: Higher Education and Research Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 6 Med 2016)

Ben Howlett: One of the key areas of regulation proposed in the Bill obviously relates to participation, and for a long time social mobility has been lacking in many areas of the regulatory system.Q I want to unpick a bit, following on from the last question, your views on the Government’s ambitions for improving participation and also the regulatory framework around improving participation.

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Gor 2016)

Ben Howlett: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield)—I should call him my hon. Friend—who is the chair of the all-party parliamentary group on students. I am the vice-chair, and it is a pleasure working with him to champion students across our country. I agree with some of the points he made. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Minister on continuing in his...

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Gor 2016)

Ben Howlett: I completely agree with my hon. Friend and near neighbour. Since 2011, students have said many times that they want more information, and in this digital age, it should not be too difficult to go online and find out in one place what information is available to help them make these choices. I hope that the Careers and Enterprise Company will end up streamlining careers advice and guidance,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (19 Gor 2016)

Ben Howlett: As part of the west of England devolution deal, business rates will be devolved to a combined authority. Will my right hon. Friend commit to full implementation of the previous deal on business rates and recognise the importance of this deal to the regional economy?

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Gor 2016)

Ben Howlett: I have ended up following the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy) on several occasions, but I will not break the mould by agreeing with him tonight and will be voting with the Government after listening to some of the most powerful speeches that I have heard in this place for a long time. The hon. Members for Gedling (Vernon Coaker), for Barrow and Furness (John Woodcock) and for...

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Gor 2016)

Ben Howlett: I am concerned about not just Scotland, but the rest of the world. Britain’s position in campaigning across the world for a reduction in the number of nuclear weapons should not distract us from what we are debating here today. Given the uncertainties in the world, I believe that we must be pursuing an international approach and an international deterrent via NATO. I understand that there...
